    R62A 1811-1815 new green stickers. They're beginning to arrive people.

    Tried to snap a pic from a moving train earlier but take a real close look a those trains.

    They would replace all the sets that have those purple stickers which they genuinely should since those 62A's don't serve in passenger service anymore. I'm not to sure about the 240th yard red ones since there's a few from the 1900s sets that still have them.

    Guys take my word on this, got the word from a buddy of mine at Westchester yard. New green stickers to be applied to the R62As. One recently SMS'ed R62A already has them. Not sure which set though.

    Just to clarify, R62A 2221-2225 only has the interior white LED lights, they dont have the LCD green local/red express sign lights on them.

    R188 Discussion Thread

    All the R62A nonsense aside, this thread was to simply document the R188 car order. I read an article that talked about the two derailments that occurred early last year with the R188s as well with all the other derailments that happened within 2017 calendar year. Evidence was found that on half of the R188s wheel flanges were worn down which cause 2 of the sets to derail just west of Mets-Willets Pt station. They had to replace half of the wheels on the R188s both New & Converted sets.

    The stickers don't matter anymore... hence forth my gripe about R62A 2221-2225 still sporting a red 240th St yard , get's SMS'ed and moved over to the .

    This is actually doable expect for one thing, theres a number of R62A sets on the Shuttle that were victims of the Cuomo "seatless" experiment. If to have those trains moved over to the then I'd would suspect the seats would need to be put back. This is a stellar idea IMO and is something the Department of Car Equipment could take a look at, however I can only imagine that all this process with the R62As would require some overtime labor when you include adding the bench seats back, removing or adding the LED signs, not mention configuring & re-configuring the width cabs on some of the sets that already do or dont have them. I truly believe the main focus right now on the R62A fleet is the A/C tune up.

    R62A 2221-2225, has had some SMS work done to it and is sitting outside 207 st shop sign up as a . This set still doesnt have those LED local green circle & express red diamond signs. How and why was this former 240th yard set chosen for the line in the first place. This only just continues to break up the order of the R62A fleet in general. This set was supposed to be just a loan from the (1), it just seems like a real mismanaged decision IMO.

    And it ain't the first time with this nonsense as it's been well documented. Two cars from the 1891-1895 set can't remember which one exactly, but 1892 had to be one of them.
